Windhorst signs 'People's Pledge,' calls for term limits
Republican candidate Patrick Windhorst recently joined Gov. Bruce Rauner and other state representatives in seeking the removal of House Speaker Mike Madigan by putting term limits on the ballot.
Windhorst, running against state Rep. Natalie Phelps-Finnie (D-Elizabethtown) in the 118th House District, recently joined Rauner and fellow GOP Reps. Dave Severin (R-Benton) and Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) in inking “The People’s Pledge” that vows to oust Madigan from power and to put the issue of term limits on the ballot.
“For far too long, Illinoisans have been forced to suffer the consequences of Speaker Madigan’s endless pursuit of consolidated power,” Windhorst wrote on Facebook. “By signing The People’s Pledge I am standing with the vast majority of Illinoisans, Democrats and Republicans, who know Illinois’ future has no room for entrenched special interests.”
Windhorst said he also views politicians like Phelps-Finnie who align themselves with Madigan, as being part of the problem.
“It’s time for Natalie Phelps-Finnie and other state legislators to join us in pledging to put the people of Illinois before Mike Madigan’s liberal agenda,” he said.
The 118th House District includes parts or all of Alexander, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski, Saline and Union counties.
